Here's a pretty piece by Sarah Nolan, who used hand-carved wood blocks to make the tree designs. Working in transparent fuschia, teal, gold and black with repeated rows of patterns she's created a lovely effect on the shimmery silver silk. Add a pop of fuschia at the cuffs and collar from the lining and it really stands out. What a great look over a simple black top and slim pants with silver jewelry! Done as a limited edition series of four coats, each one uses the same color palette and tree design, but they're all arranged in different patterns for a free, spontaneous effect. Many of our coats are reversible too; just remove labels and wear the inside out when you are in a "fuschia" mood... fun!

About Sarah Nolan


I was born in Mississippi and had a childhood that included eating fried chicken (yum!), fishing for bass and swinging on wisteria vines. 

I moved to NYC after college and began a different life working in tall gray buildings, wearing gray/blue/black clothes and getting an MBA at night at NYU. I spent endless hours at a top consulting firm restructuring really big companies.

The next phase of my career began as a corporate innovator/rejuvenator and CEO and restructured two large financial subsidiaries and three very small internet companies.  Then I stopped and became a consultant for non profit organizations.

Art Coat Painted by Sarah Nolan

One day, pneumonia caught me and I thought I would die. When I got better I began to paint seven days a week to learn how to make art.  I learned to paint on non-traditional fabrics with objects in addition to paintbrushes and to stitch and embroider paintings. I went to India to learn block 

printing and learned to paint on clothing.

While living in NYC, prior to attending a ladies' luncheon, I decided I was tired of wearing traditional dull-colored suits and made a brightly painted gold silk coat to wear. (See "Faberge" in our pictures.) Other attendees wanted to know where they could get one. Singular Couture was born. 

I love painting original pieces of clothing. Now I have the additional fun of finding talented artists to add to our roster of artists who paint pieces for Singular Couture.
